This one looks simple and interesting for surface and subsurface.
Did I walk across the lake on the backs of those damsels or was that you? I remember waves of the adults were blanketed across the surface they were so thick.Like our last visit to Chopaka? We couldn't buy a fish in the reeds, but you were smart and moved out into the open and started to hook up.
Where can I find the letter labels for specific lakes?Color of surroundings can not be overstated. Just want to add that different lakes have different strategies:
lake A - Black damsel with lantern green lateral lines with slow hand twist in 20+ feet of water with a deep six full sinking
lake B - Dark brown damsel with dark tail hand twist using a dry line "immediately" begin the hand twist
lake C - Blueish/Light Olive body with gray marabou tail fished from bottom of lake to top 2 feet with intermediate line
lake D - light tan/olive Ausie opossum body and tail fish right in the bottom with very little movement
I have tried various patterns with strike indicators with mixed reactions but will always listen Chan and/or Rolley for better advice.
Jay, this is what I hooked my one fish up on Leech the last time I was there. I was up there last year and had no damsel pattern and another fisherman gave me a couple of these. I need to find some of that blue braid.This one looks simple and interesting for surface and subsurface.
Man, if fishing for brookies is tough, you know the action is slow.Saturday July 25 was very slow there for almost everybody, including me. Caught 1 rainbow on an adult damsel and missed 3. Brookies were small and tough fishing for them also. People said the weekend before that was great.
